Only you would take pocket squares to a desert island.
I'd certainly give something like that a look. I'd worry a little bit about the volume that such a square would generate in a pocket, though. My 16x16" Drake's squares are already a little more substantial than I'd ideally like.
IMHO 14x14" would be the perfect size for wool/silk and 16x16" for pure silk. Then again, I wear smaller jackets with correspondingly small breast pockets.
I think this would depend on the makeup of the wool/silk, which, admittedly, I have no KW experience with.
I'm basing my thoughts off of Christian Kimber wool/silk ones, which I believe are 18". I absolutely love them, but the blend is extremely gauzy and airy. If KW is more substantial, then I would happily drop to 15" or 16".
In any event, I would really like to potentially see if this could fly. Any thoughts @Kent Wang?
Note: another potential F/W square would, in my mind, be The Great Hunt, depending on how it is placed in the pocket.
Where'd you see that?
Note: yes, I know the obvious answer would be Ivy Style lol, but I'm not seeing anything Wang related.
This is off topic (hopefully just temporarily...love the MTM conversations), but awhile back there was discussion about Kent making 17x17" wool/silk squares, that, unfortunately went nowhere.
Is this something that folks would be interested in? If I recall correctly, Kent said such a square would run about $85, which, while not cheap, is fair, at least in my estimation.
Perhaps, to keep Kent from having extra inventory, we could (assuming Kent would be ok with this, I have not checked) get a group order of some sort to have a given square(s) run with those specs, thus eliminating the potential of said squares going unclaimed, which I know Kent has said has been a deterrent for certain offerings prior.
Very, verrryyyy early stages of this brainstorm, but, you never get what you want if you're unwilling to ask!
Have you tried the 13" wool/silk?
Maybe. What colors do you have in mind?
I have not, and probably should. I've found wool/silk squares of that size to be a bit small, but, I can't knock a KW one until I try!
In regards to braces, I'd say some combination of navy, red, grey, and beige, with navy and grey being the tops for me. Thurston's site also offers a peach, which I think would be gorgeous as well.
